Storyline

Rebels bands, whose leaders each pretend to be Spartacus, striking all over the region confuse the Romans. One of two columns with mainly women and children thus escapes, the other is captured and bloodily made into examples, crucified along the Via Appia. Once Crassus realizes the truth about Tiberius, Kore suffers the same fate. Spartacus cunningly prepared the battle field he chose to oppose Crassus's legions in a desperate last battle, with Gannicus in commanded of a mounted reserve to pincer the Roman infantry. Nevertheless, the last true gladiators fall one by one, so Crassus and Caesar triumph, only to be forced politically to allow Pompey, who actually arrived to late, to take the main credit, so as to forge the triumvirate which will take over Rome.

Quotes

Spartacus: Soon Crassus will give command! And we shall face his legions in open battle! We stand in the shadow of greater might! As their Republic cast across the lives of every man, every woman, and every child condemned to the darkness of slavery! Forced to toil and suffer, so that those of coin and position can see their fortunes grow beyond need or purpose! Let us teach them, that all who draw breath are of equal worth! And that those that seek to place heel upon the throat of liberty will fall to ...

A 10/10 finish to an epic season
17 April 2013 | by shashiu-kumarSee all my reviews

This is probably one of the finest Series Finales ever....I started watching this show 3 years back skeptically..first season even though at times tight in the script and dialogs was marred by cheap production values and resembled soft core...but with the prequel things changed and though was not a big fan of season two, the final season came into its own. Liam found his feet as Spartacus and the supporting cast was excellent (a fine antagonist and the reason i started liking this show....Gannicus in prime form) and the it reached the crescendo with the finale.....the production values are not cheap anymore even though shot on green screen and can put to shame any high budget period drama...the dialogs are crisp and the drama riveting...add to it the perfectly synchronized action sequences and you have a perfect episode...the only complaint i have with the episode is that its the last episode of this fantastic series...wish they could have continued with another season
